CBCP Commission Statements
With profound joy we greet and address you, our Young People in the Philippines as we celebrate the National Youth Day 2022, this December 16th, the first day of our traditional Aguinaldo Masses and Simbang Gabi.
As the Church in the Philippines once again celebrates Prison Awareness Sunday, we are invited to grow in our awareness and knowledge of the situation and plight of our sisters and brothers in the various prisons and jails all over the country, our PDLs (persons deprived of liberty), as well as their dreams and hopes for true freedom, restorative justice and the chance for a new life.
“Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?” Faith begins when we realize we are in need of salvation.
Christ’s light guides our journey. These are days of struggle, hardships, and despair. With Typhoon Odette and Omicron straining the capacities of local communities and families, Christians must unite in solidarity with the most vulnerable among us.
This has yet been a very challenging year for all of us. We had to forego the usual national activities for the youth. I am sure, your usual gatherings have also been affected.
